 Others maintain that merely replacing the caps with caps of the correct nominal value will work fine.

-There has been discussion on the lists about the type of capacitor used for recapping the TG. In addition, there have been claims that certain caps, chosen for their audio qualities should be used. Here is a link to a web page called [The Sound of Capacitors - Capacitor Linearity | http://greygum .net /sbench /sbench102/caps.html]. In it, experimental data is presented that provides a better clue of what to look for in a capacitor used for audio purposes.

 You will never be able to rebuild a Hammond that have paper and wax capacitors to sound exactly like it did factory new (just because these capacitors are no longer available). The vintage paper and wax that are sometimes available on ebay will probably be way out of spec. I believe you will be closest to the original creamy tone that you hear on old Jimmy Smith albums using vintage paper and oil. 
  
 Vintage paper and oil can not be beat for vintage type sound whether in a Hammond organ (pre mylar red capacitor)or Leslie.
